Bio and Links
Bio Photo My particular areas of interest are Berks, Montgomery, Schuylkill, and Lehigh Counties in Pennsylvania.

I may chose to reset my memorial which I find to be defaced with gaudy clip images. If you feel this information is vital send as a suggestion in digital format to add to the bio section.

Do not request a middle name be added unless it appears in a obituary/death/burial/birth record/tombstone. Mother's last names are seldom given as a middle name at baptism.

My Patriots of the Revolution include:
George Herbst 1712, George Dry 1725, Johannes Koch 1725, Daniel Guldin 1735, Johann Christian Scheidt 1736, Michael DeLong 1739, Bernhard Eitel 1745, Michael Krebs 1744, Henrich Knauss 1746, John De Turck 1747, Marmaduke Von Buskirk 1750, John Grant 1754, Sebastian Koch 1757

Com. Sgt. Jeremiah Reimel
Commissary Sargent Jeremiah Reimel is/was my great-great grandfather.

Until recently, I believed he was buried in Gettysburg National Cemetery and had him listed as so.

It recently came to my attention that he is buried in Erie, PA at the Soldiers & Sailors Home Cemetery a.k.a. Veterans Memorial Cemetery.

Some of your information appears to be incorrect as I have a copy of his pension record where he lists 3 children (all daughters) and my calculations say that he only had 2 children at the age of 25, the third daughter being born when he was about 27 1/2 years old.

At any rate, I was wondering if we could somehow either merge these two records or perhaps delete one or the other. OR that you could transfer this memorial to me so I can make corrections as I see fit.

Many thanks to you.

I am curious to know where you obtained the information you posted about him.

Thanks- Bertha (BeBe)

He is a link to the memorial I have for him which I corrected today to reflect his proper place of death and burial.

Problems with # 107854986
Ellen Spatz WAS Married to a MACHMER, however on her death certificate it lists that she was divorced and she was going back to her maiden name of SPATZ just as the tombstone indicates.

Not sure what the protocol is on divorce, but I would think linking the kids and dropping the Machmer on the listing and documenting it in the bio would suffice. I can send you a copy of the death certificate.

RE: Jonathan Rhoads
My pleasure- my husband found a notebook at a flea market that three people put together around 1983 of the burials in Fairview Cemetery. I want to try to use it to locate some of these photo requests but, alas, there is no index so it's slow going.

Lash Family
Hi Neil I was wondering your source for the Lash Family, Frank, Ruth,& Esther Lash # 131472454,
#131472419, #131472437. I have been looking for their graves for years. Do you know where they are buried??
Frank is the son og Philip Lash who is buried at Aulenbach's Cemetery. The daughter Esther has a large write up as she died in a airplane crash near Pittsburg, Pa. She was a school teacher. Do you know the caretaker to the cemetery? or who would know where on the cemetery they are buried??
Thanks! Harry Lash

Henry Savage
May I ask your source for Alvin & Sarah Evans Savage as the parents of Henry Savage #138487687.

I think his parents were Allen and Sarah Adams Savage.

Alexander Ranier
Hello, I am the 3 great granddaughter to Alexander Gordon Rainier, I want to thank you for getting a photo of his gravestone.

He may have been a private, but he led an interesting military career during the civil war and received including when he re-enlisted in the 4th NJ Volunteers and during the siege at Petersburg, VA, he received a commendation for urging his fellow soldiers: On April 2, 1865, Alexander took part in the attack of Fort Fisher at the Seige of Petersburg in Va. Lt.-Col. Baldwin Hufty, 4th NJ Vet. Vols. wrote
on April 18, 1865: "In compliance with circular from headquarters, 1st
Brigade of this date, I have the honor to forward the following report of
officers and men who particularly distinguished themselves by their bravery and
good conduct in the battle of the 2nd Instant.....Private Alexander G. Rainier, Company D, by bravery in trying to rally his comrades....."

He spelled his last name Rainier and before the war he was a tailor. A career I believe he continued when he met and married Winifred Collins and moved to Danville, PA.

Henry Conrad - St Peter's Cemetery
I do not dispute that Rev. Gockelin pastor of St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Pine Grove held the burial ceremony of Henry Conrad. However, I do dispute the date of Henry's death and placement of his remains.
The document you used to provide proof is a typewritten transcription of Rev Gockelin. The original is written in German script and German language which is also found online but I am unable to translate! I believe the month of death was incorrectly transcribed.
A monument is found in St. John's Cemetery for Henry, his wife, Elizabeth and 7 of their children, all with full dates which are quite legible. When the snow melts I will get a photo of that memorial. I believe that the dates given by the family on this monument to be correct.
Rev. Gockelin served several congregations in Pine Grove at the same time. St. John's church was not founded until 1845, 4 years after Henry Conrad died. However, the cemetery which is now called St. Johns existed prior to the formation of that church, and is now the community cemetery, maintained by but independent of St. John's parish. This cemetery is adjacent to St. Peter's Old cemetery.
With this information I respectfully ask you to review your information for Henry Conrad and others which you listed using the same source placing them in St. Peter's Cemetery as I am photographing the tombstones in St. John's Cemetery and finding discrepancies by researching all the available documents. Thank you. gippygirl
